character-type

The ABAP data types C, N, D, T, and STRING

code

Binary encoding of letters, digits, and special characters

codepage

Set of encoded characters for the environment selected

data cluster

Grouping of several data objects (fields, structure, table)

DDIC

ABAP Data Dictionary

endian

The byte order of a number. Numbers are stored in memory with decreasing place value either from left to right (big-endian format) or from right to left (little-endian format)

front end

Presentation server in the R/3 System

kernel

The Basis functions of the R/3 System (written in C and C++)

NUP

Non-Unicode program: ABAP program for which the Unicode flag has not been set

NUS

Non-Unicode system: R/3 System, in which each character is encoded in binary form such that it occupies one byte

remaining length

Pertaining to a field or other character type structure, the total length minus the offset

surrogate area

Character supplement for characters that cannot be contained in standard Unicode (which can only contain 65,536 characters). In addition to the standard Unicode bit pattern, the system reads two further bytes from this area.

Unicode Fragment View

View that splits structures into similar data areas

UP

Unicode program: ABAP program for which the Unicode flag has been set

US

Unicode system: R/3-System, in which each character is encoded in binary form, such that it occupies either two or four bytes

UTF-8

Data format for communication and data exchange

XML

Extensible Markup Language: language used to display documents on the Internet
